Wii knockoff Vii's Chinese television commercial, also disassembly


9:40 AM on 12.03.2007



A few months ago we told you about a Chinese Wii one-off called the Vii. This product steals not only Nintendo's design and control scheme, but also bites from its marketing and advertising model, as it's aimed at families, children, and elderly people.

Seeing the device in action in the Vii's Chinese television infomercial really hits home. The games look like sad rip-offs of Wii Sports titles, and the two misshapen-headed mascots are horrendously ugly. Scary even. Also, who is James?

There's one exception: I pointed out earlier that the Cooking Mama rip-off looked pretty good, and  now that I've seen the game in action, I have to say that it looks to have slightly better graphics than Cooking Mama. Weird.   

The disassembly by the Chinese engadget team has awaits after the jump. You'll be surprised to see innards of this console -- there's hardly anything in it!

Guild Wars 2's Chinese publisher had the MMO at 760,000 players on launch day. Two months later, it's reporting 3.8 million Chinese players. Guild Wars 2's first year sales, before the Chinese launch, were at 3.5 million, so total sales are at least over 7 million.  Not bad, not bad.  [Via NeoGAF]more
